A friend of mine and long time meditator with strong shakti/kundalini was turning blue for a few
days - his skin was exuding what looked and acted like a very fine medium blue paint - it rubbed
off onto a cloth and was widespread on his body but was particularly pronounced on his forehead
after meditating - no other symptoms save that he was meditating 'extra deep'- he's stable and
healthy, very devoted to his practice and seemingly well along on his sadhana - any knowledge,
ideas, experiences, tid-bits?

	I have just an idea: there are plenty of blue people in those
	Hindu pictures...

	Ciao,  Carlo

On June 15, Alex mentioned he had a friend whose skin exuded a blue
substance while in deep meditation.  I have no idea what it was, but I wonder
if there is some esoteric connection to Krishna and other blue-skinned
deities.  Many mythological stories allude to "secret" spiritual processes.
 Any ideas about this?

I know of a woman with risen Kundalini whose skin -- over her entire body --
exuded a blackish substance for several weeks.  She said it had the texture
of cobwebs and could be easily rubbed off.


(From an anonymous poster...)
You are probably right. One of Shiva's 1008 names is niilakanTha (niila =
blue, kanTha = neck). During the churning of the ocean (=saagara manthan, saagara
= ocean & manthana = churning), which is probably an allegorical myth
pertaining to the rising of the K, there came a vessel (I think) full of poison (vishha
) and this was going to poison the three worlds (cf 3 naadis for the rising of
kundalinii shaktii!). Then Shiva undertook to drink it as he is 'out of
Time'.  The poison made his throat look blue, hence the name niilakanTha.

Kaalii maataa is dark blue/dark. Kaali means dark as well as the Mistress
controlling Time. There are 7 (!)forms of Kaalii.

Hope this helps.
